Six shades of mirror lenses to enjoy summer

Apr 20 2016 | Essilor

The hot weather is almost here.  Cocktails, BBQ's and trips to the beach are just around the corner.  And when it comes to summer, nothing say 'fun in the sun' like a pair of sunglasses!

There are very few people who don't wear sunglasses during the summer. When it's time to break out the summer wardrobe, stylish sunglasses are the most natural accessory. Crizal Mirrors Sun UV go a step further providing protection as well as style.

Protect eyes all summer long

We all know the role that sunscreen plays when it comes to protecting our skin, but what do we know about protecting our eyes?

For example, 100 % UVA / UVB Protection is what sunglasses normally offer, but is it really enough? This type of protection works to protect eyes while facing the sun - UV rays will not penetrate the lenses to reach the eyes.  However, when the sun shifts position, UV rays can come from behind and be reflected into our eyes by our lenses. In fact, up to 50% of UV rays are reflected into our eyes in this manner.  This is why it is important to know about E-SPF® - a sun protection index for eyes. For complete protection, this index also factors into account the UV rays that are reflected on the inside of lenses.

Regular sun lenses that are featured in most frames protect us from the brightness of the sun, but they don't really contribute to visual comfort. These lenses don't offer any protection from light reflecting off a variety of surfaces such as water, tarred roads or the windshields of cars. These reflections, known as polarized light, can cause glare.

Much like a Venetian blind, polarized lenses have been specifically created to eliminate glare allowing for superior eye comfort.
